Ever since Joe Biden took office, Americans have witnessed the politicization of the Justice Department.
From classifying parents at school board meetings as terrorists to raiding the home of a former president to ignoring the illegal protests at Supreme Court Justices’ homes, the DOJ has not tried to hide its biases.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said in a recent interview on Fox News that it’s time for an investigation.
He revealed that if the results of the midterm elections give Republicans control of the House of Representatives, he will investigate the politicization of the Justice Department.
“You cannot have a political Justice Department and also have a free society, a free country,” Jordan maintains.
He cited the testimony of more than 14 FBI agents who came to the House Judiciary Committee, of which Jordan is a ranking member, requesting whistleblower status. Their claims point to the politicization of the FBI in particular.
Jordan added that the whistleblowers made claims that the FBI is even going as far as attempting to rid the agency of anyone holding conservative beliefs.
“There is even a purging, some of these guys have said. They are trying to get rid of folks in the FBI that have conservative beliefs.”
On September 23, 2022, the FBI raided the home of pro-life activist Mark Houck though he had already agreed to cooperate with authorities.
Jim Jordan and other Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee wrote a letter regarding this matter to Attorney General Merrick Garland and Jacqueline C. Romero, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
“Several recent actions by the department reinforce the conclusion that the Justice Department is using its federal law-enforcement authority as a weapon against the administration’s political opponents,” the Republicans wrote.
“We write to conduct oversight of your authorization of a dawn raid of the home of a pro-life leader, in front of his wife and seven children, when he had offered to voluntarily cooperate with authorities,” the letter expressed.
Mr. Houck was indicted by the FBI for pushing a volunteer abortion escort in front of a Philadelphia Planned Parenthood in October 2021. Local authorities declined to prosecute the case and the judge threw out a civil lawsuit.
So why is the FBI going after him now? This is what Jim Jordan wants to know.
The Democrats pulled out the big guns this weekend, sending Barack Obama on the campaign trail.
At an event in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, he threw out predictions (or warnings) that if the Republicans take the House, they are “prepared” to impeach Biden.
He said Republicans see it as payback, adding that “They’re not sure for what, but that’s beside the point.”
If you ask House Republicans, surely they can name at least a few impeachable offenses President Biden has committed. Besides weaponizing the DOJ, Biden’s open border policy goes against his vow to uphold the Constitution.
